Just a brief update on my focused effort to pay off our mortgage. Here is the original (somewhat rambly) post on the subject :

Here are the results so far:

Date Amount
January, 2013 $354,000
June, 2015 $330,466
February, 2016 $297,421

Paid since June 2015: $ 33,045

I had hoped for $24,000 per year, so am really happy to see that I could beat it. And ten percent gone in seven months! I can't claim that I think I can do that every seven months.... but I sure can try.

ThyPeace, and we're maxing out our retirement contributions. And saving for other things too.
